Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have alpha-catenin binding activity; dystroglycan binding activity; and enzyme binding activity. Involved in several processes, including axon extension; cell adhesion; and lamellipodium assembly. Localizes to several cellular components, including the fascia adherens; focal adhesion; and intracellular non-membrane-bounded organelle. Predicted to colocalize with the actin filament and stress fiber. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in dilated cardiomyopathy; dilated cardiomyopathy 1W; hypertrophic cardiomyopathy; and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy 15. Orthologous to human VCL (vinculin).
